MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Children now have a mobile option for free and nutritious meals, thanks to a new program provided by the Marana Unified School District.  

Marana Cares Mobile is a refurbished school bus that offers a "fun dining experience in an air conditioned, handicap accessible" setting to all children.  
 
"We recognize that nutrition and health are critical to a child's ability to learn and be successful," said Dr. Doug Wilson, MUSD superintendent, in a news release. "In keeping with our commitment to our students and our community, we believe that our Marana Cares Mobile provides the opportunity to meet these critical needs during school breaks and summer months so students are better prepared to return to school ready to learn. We are excited to be able to give even more back to our community by doing what is the very best for children."

This holiday season Marana Cares Mobile will be available on the following dates and locations: 
Dec. 21 - 23 and Dec. 28 - 30 from 11 a.m. to noon at Sandario Road and Anthony Road (southeast corner next to the Marana Congregation of Jehovah's Witness Church), and from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 6560 W. El Tiro Road (at the Marana Domestic Water Improvement District).  

The Marana Cares Mobile is made possible via private donations, corporate sponsorships, charitable foundations and the USDA Summer Food Service Program.

    The Fire Chief Joseph De Wolf with Sonoita-Elgin Fire District said the rain was a relief but not a reason to relax, as fire season starts to heat up in southern Arizona. He said conditions are monitored daily because they could change just as quickly.
